unfold. so president obama has about 12 months here. >> don't you think in terms of who they are rebranding against, the competition, if you will, if we're talking marketplace term, the democrats thus far, for the most part the democrats kind of have it together in a way they historically have not. >> well, sort of. i mean, we still don't have a budget. we don't have a grand bargain in terms of social insurance reform and taxes beyond the top clinton rate. so i think to say the democrats are operating at a higher proficiency level at the moment politically that's true, how long that lasts is the question. and without -- it's interesting because their fates are linked. if the republicans don't play a partnership role as you were saying to find some common ground, then i think the whole system once again is going to become evermore dysfunctional in the eyes of the voters. >> can it get more dysfunctional? there have been many iterations of cantor. on immigration, he backs the path to citizenship on some. on guns, he wants to improve current back joupd checks but is inconcl
that said barack obama or you gave people the option of clicking online on something that said mitt romney, more people would click on the thing that said barack obama. consistently. by a lot. in a controversial article last summer right in the heat of the campaign, an article that acknowledged what everybody else in the media already knew was true, but had not admitted outloud, the website buzz of feed finally put a headline on it and put it up in black and white. mitt romney is terrible for traffic. they mean web traffic. they did what essentially amounted to a control experiment in terms of people's interest online in the two candidates. look. 29 photos of baby barack obama versus 30 photos of mitt romney as a child. essentially, you're offering the same thing. reliably adorable childhood images of people you know now as full grown men. it's the same comparison, apples to apples. the photos of baby obama got just under 70,000 views. the photos of baby romney just over 6,000 views. that is worse than 10 to 1. okay, maybe it's a baby thing. how about if we age them a little. barack obama,
this is not the consolatory obama that came in january 2011 with that need that he knew he was chasing. that he was going to have to work together with the republicans. a somewhat toned down barack obama from the 2012 state of the union trying to talk to the voters, set the tone for the campaign. he wanted to deliver this. hey, guys, we have to do some of these votes. i wonder, they have a lot of what i would call very well pull tests. the issue that they hit on on education and the economy in particular, things like universal prepaid, raising the minimum wage, these are tangible items that average, middle-class families listening to this , speech. i have a feeling that could resonate very well. they accomplish what they wanted to do, which is talk about the economy in simpler terms over the head of washington. >> chuck todd, thank you for joining us. >> all right. >> joining us from san antonio, texas, the mayor of san antonio. mayor castro, thank you for joining us. >> let me ask you about the word comprehensive. we have all been if through watching the attempt by the government to reform immigration
have appeared in an oscar. was this a hit? >> i loved michelle obama, and i thought this was really a horrible idea. it just felt wrong. it felt like another universe entering in there. i mean oscar -- movies are pretend. this was like -- i don't know. all the formality and the guards behind her. and it seemed creepy to me. and pairing her with jack nicholson? >> that was interesting. definitely gave him some cover. but quickly, would it have worked better obviously if she had been there? would it have worked if she was there? >> i don't think she should have been there. she doesn't belong there. hollywood has its own royalty. it has its own first ladies and first men. that's what the evening is about. oh, daniel day lewis, a god, a god. absolutely a god. and he was slightful. he was funnier than seth macfarlane. >> david edelstein, great to have you with us. >> see you next year. >> yes, you will. that's "the ed show." i'm ed schultz. "the rachel maddow show" starts right now. >> good evening. the only thing that is going to top yours and david edelstein's take at the oscars last n
tactin under way to find the fugitive. >>> meanwhile, back in washington, for president obama, it's all about the state of the union. this afternoon we'll tell you what he plans to say during that prime time address to the nation. >>> but we start with weather. and as we mentioned, the snowfall has ended, but the cleanup and the dig-out is going to be going on for some time. we'll get back to our weather in just a few moments. >>> within the next hour, we are expecting to get official word or expecting to get word that the reward for the suspected cop killer is being raised to $1 million. that's according to "the los angeles times." the lapd, the l.a. mayor and other top officials are scheduled to hold a news conference soon. they'll have the latest on the manhunt for chris dorner, the ex-cop who's accused of killing three people, including one police officer. the latest image we have of dorner is this, some surveillance video taken monday behind an auto parts store near san diego. meanwhile, the tsa is asking airports to keep a close eye on their aircraft. they believe that dorner may
that kind e-mail. "morning joe" begins right now. >>> our president, barack obama, took day or two off to go play golf in florida. i don't care, fine, go play golf, i don't care. played with a guy named tiger woods. this is our president playing golf this weekend. what do you think? >> i thought it was funny. >> good morning, everyone. it is tuesday, february 19th. welcome to "morning joe." with us on set, we have msnbc and "time" magazine senior political analyst, mark halperin. >> hey, mark halperin, how you doing? >> national affairs editor for "new york" magazine and msnbc political analyst, john heilemann. in nashville, we have -- >> look at that! >> pulitzer prize winning historian and author, jon meach meacham. >> it's dark down there. >> it is dark. >> shall we get right to the news? >> let's do it. >> there's a piece on rattner. >> sorkin, andrew sorkin. like aenaen -- an insider newsletter. >> none of us are quoted. >> i'm so tired of being an outsider, raging against the news. >> can we do news? >> yes, we can. >> msnbc news "morning joe." >> i ghosted this, man. >> let's move in.
about a more just america. >> i remember you spoked at her funeral, you were senator obama and i was a civil rights leader. >> you're now head of the free world and i'm still just a civil rights leader. >> back then, as i recall, i think i was second from last on the speaking list. and i think you were in the top five. so, you know, that showed our relative position. >> our relative positions have changed. but the president hasn't. he's still standing up for what's right. and, as important, there were many that stood up for what was right that made it possible for him to be president. or me and others to be what we are. and then there were some like rosa parks who sat down so we could all stand up. stand up as an america that means what it said. one nation, under god, indivisible with liberty and justice for all. human rights for everyone. not just forsome. that's the mission and we won't stop until we get there. thanks for watching. i'm a.m. sharpton, "hardball" starts right now. >> sabotage. let's play "hardball" ♪ >> it's a down and dirty world when youp decide shop cho pin
by president obama is a badge of honor. here is some of the tea party types we found today, just today, michael, who are backing the cuts. ohio congressman jim jordan said back in october, quote, i would say the only thing that's worse than cutting national defense is not having any scheduled cuts in place at all. louisiana congressman steve scalise told "dow jones business news," quote, the consensus is we want the sequester numbers to come in and finally reduce spending in washington. south carolina congressman mike mulvaney said we want to keep the sequester in place and take the cuts we can get. georgia congressman paul broun, i want to see it go into place. and rand paul in his tea party response to the state of the union said, not only should the sequester stand, many pundits say the sequester really needs to be at least $4 trillion to avoid another downgrade on america's credit rating. there you have a lot of people on the record, michael, on the republican side saying they want the sequester. i'm curious why you contend this is not a partisan issue. >> because it isn't, chris. chris, it
with general electric c.e.o. jeffrey immelt. after that, the weekly addresses by president obama and alaska senator lisa murkowski. then funeral service for former new york city mayor ed koch. >> having observed a setty improvement in the opportunities and well-being of our citizens, i can report to you that the state of this old but youthful union is good. >> once again in keeping with time-honored tradition i've come to report to you on the state of the union. and i'm pleased to report that america is much improved. and there's good reason to believe that improvement will continue for the days to come. >> my duty tonight is to report on the state of the union. not the state of our government. but of our american community. and to set forth our responsibilities in the words of our founders to form a more perfect union. the state of the union is strong. >> as we gather tonight our nation is at war. our economy is in recession. and the sismized world faces unprecedented -- civilized world faces unprecedented nature yet the state of our union has never been stronger. >> it's because of our pe
of the union address of his second term -- >> the state of our union is strong. >> reporter: -- president obama made a direct challenge to congress. >> let's get this done. >> reporter: as he laid out his vision for the country, the president repeatedly called on democrats and republicans to act. >> the american people don't expect government to solve every problem. but they do expect us to put the nation's interests before party. >> reporter: it all came on the same day speaker john boehner called the president out for not having the courage or guts to make tough choices on the budget. the president used the power of the podium to push back. >> some in congress have proposed preventing only the defense cuts. by making even bigger cuts to things like education and job training. medicare and social security benefits. that idea is even worse. >> reporter: as is typical of most state of the union addresses, the president covered lots of ground. >> our first priority is making america a magnet for new jobs and manufacturing. we must do more to combat climate change. send me a comprehensive immigrat
is in washington to see the speech as is nbc's chuck todd. and former obama campaign adviser robert gibbs is here as well. robert, i understand that i am for the first time tonight able to introduce you as an msnbc contributor. congratulations on that. thanks for being here. >> thank you. i'm happy to be here. >> gun safety reform, immigration reform, climate change, education reform, election reform, ending the war in afghanistan. the president has been explicit that these are all on deck for his second term agenda. how do you pick which of these things can be helped along by prominent placement in a speech like that? >> i think that's what will be interesting to see tonight. the president begins by talking about the budget difficulties and situations we have to deal with over the next couple of weeks. get into a huge priority like immigration and clean energy which the president has. and i expect this speech will end with a pretty emotional call for doing something on gun safety. >> we're right now looking at a live picture of the justices of the supreme court having been announced and entering
, it was the white house. it was obama and jack lew and rob neighbors who went to the democratic leader in the senate, harry reid, and said this is the solution. >> all right. meanwhile, senator lindsay graham is suggesting one potential -- >> i'm sorry, could i interrupt? i had a munchkin in my mouth. >> no, you can't have those. you're supposed to have your greek yogurt. >> i'm trying to make a point with a visual aid. this is like defense spending. done. gone. >> before the day has even started, you've just -- give those to me. >> i'm not homer simpson. what do you make of what woodward said? >> the president's in charge. he's got to figure out a way to stop the sequester. i think the symbolism of the last couple weeks haven't been great. he's not really out there leading a new path towards figuring out how to avoid something he says is a bad idea and promised as a candidate wouldn't happen. >> okay. john, joe's mouth is full. what do you think? >> i'm hap think the sequester be a bad thing. >> everyone says that. who's going to take the blame? who should? >> if it ends up going into effect, i thi
like a reelected president -- barack obama, bill clinton -- that means continuity rather than change. but as far as speaking itself, i enjoy it. i enjoy the challenge. you are walking into a room full of strangers. you have never met them, they have never laid eyes on you, they may have seen you on television in passing or whatever -- within an hour, they walk out with some sense of you. 45 minutes to make them think, make them laugh. that is the highest praise you can get, is somebody coming up and saying, you made me think and made me laugh. that is high praise for me as a speaker. >> let's lay down the basics for mark shields -- born where? >> massachusetts, may 25, 1930 seven. >> parents did what? >> my dad was a paper salesman, involved in the town, government and politics. my mother had been a schoolteacher but at that time when schoolteachers married they could no longer -- they were stained women or something of the sort, because they no longer could teach in the public schools of massachusetts as a married woman. so she was a mother and homemaker. >> how many brothers and si
device. why is president obama hours away from announcing cuts now to our own nuclear arsenal? breaking details for you straight ahead. >>steve: meet the shooter, the navy seal who took down osama bin laden setting the record straight and making a shocking claim. he has been betrayed by the u.s. federal government and can barely afford to feed his family. he's jobless. his story this morning. >>brian: how much would you pay to take these guitars from rock n'roll moves history to your living room? the chance is coming your way as "fox & friends" starts right now. >>gretchen: breaking news because it set off earthquake warnings but it was actually a north korean nuclear test. it all happened hours ago and now the world son alert. kelly wright is on this story for us live in washington right now. good morning, kelly. >> good morning to all of you this morning. president obama calls north korea's latest nuclear test a highly provocative act. north korea announcing it detonated a miniature nuclear device successfully at a northeastern test site. the u.n. confirms the blast was larger than pr
, and they have at the most popular politician in the country behind their back. president obama said he is ready to work with them. notably he and former president bill clinton had become more eager to get ahead, more progressive, vs senate democrats. you've got to be ready to compromise a little bit with the other elements of congress in the coming months. you are going to have defections when it comes to gun control, immigration, and what we may have to do with a fiscal policy. host: you touch on that point, an unlikely ally for house democrats, the speaker of the house, john boehner. guest: that is something that many democrats have pointed out. he made -- he may need them to get some of these bills passed. as he did with the debt ceiling vote. as he did with the bill for hurricane sandy victims. as it came with the fiscal cliff agreement. i see that as a possibility with a gun control and immigration, because while republicans cannot be eager and willing to discuss the issues, pulling suggest that the house may have to pass something. i will meet democrats. host: -- they will need democrats.
. and you have liberals running around saying oh, you know what? actually, obama's spending less money than any president since dwight eisenhower, which maybe they convinced themselves of this just like right-wing radicals convinced themselves of all the things that have led them to defeat over the past several presidential elections. when nancy pelosi says we don't have a spending problem, americans say, she's out of touch. when nancy pelosi says the problem with medicare is not medicare, americans say, she's out of touch. when barack obama says you know what? we're going to fix this by raising taxes yet again, barack obama and nancy pelosi and the democratic party are out of touch. now, listen. i've been spending the past four years saying the republican party is out of touch, and they're going to lose the presidential election because of it. and i was right. republicans. now, let me say to democrats. you're out of touch. you've got a spending problem. medicare is a problem. and if you go back to the well again and raise taxes again, if that's your answer, your answer's always raising tax
. the super bowl is suddenly a good sporting event. >> i know. >> to politics, president obama takes his push for new gun-control measures on the road to minneapolis today where he'll share ideas with law enforcement leaders on how to curb gun violence. this as nra's chief executive, wayne lapierre, continued his spirited defense of gun rights this weekend. speaking with fox news's chris wallace about that controversial nra ad that brought the president's children into the gun debate. >> the president's kids are safe, and we're all thankful for it. >> they also face a threat that most children do not face. >> tell that to the people of newtown. tell that -- >> you really think that the president's children are the same kind of target as every schoolchild in america? that's ridiculous and you know it, sir. >> you know, unfortunately, i think there are parents all over the school that -- all over the country that think their kids are entitled to the same amount of protection when they go to school. >> so they should have secret service? >> no, but what they should have is police officers or cer
of president obama, if you were offered a deal on the budget that had $10 of spending cuts for every dollar of tax increases are revenue, would be to the deal. he said no. that is the nut is thing i have ever heard. ronald reagan would have grabbed that with both hands. but the time we got to the general election, obama has been attacked so far to the right. but the time he got back, it was too late. the campaign did a brilliant job of focusing on the eight swing states. they began advertising before conventional wisdom said to advertise in august. they put this car on bain capital and all the other day getting things on the table. by the time to get to november, there is a scab built up on the principle on socially moderate fiscal conservative women. even though they may not have been in love with with the president was taking the country economically, they could not get over the fact that the republican message from the primary was scary. host: marco rubio will be delivering the republican response to the state of the union address. he wants to put the gop on a path of cities -- citizensh
to challenge president obama. he is on the national stage. he has been on the national stage before. got very good reviews of a speech he delivered at the republican national convention in august in tampa. so the expectation here is fairly high for marco rubio as someone who is seen, because of his background, because of his makeup, because of his energy, because of the places that in politics have taken him thus far and he is only in his early 40s, that this is someone who is here to shine for republicans. who will be the standard-bearer of the party going forward. so the stakes are certainly high especially since republicans failed to recapture the white house in the past election. neil: gentlemen, thank you very much. we're just waiting now the sergeant-at-arms to introduce the president of the united states. there's a procedure for this. we got advance copy of some of the president's remarks. his speech should be about an hour. that is not factoring in applause. with applause it could go back to 61, 62 minutes. the president averages anywhere from 60 applause interruptions to in, 2010, 86
, the obama campaign has decided to roll over much of its apparatus into a 501c4. reformers often talk about the worry of large donations going to a group whether it's a political committee or this type of committee and i don't know if you were helpful in setting the 501c4 up, but i was wondering how risky it might be to have a city -- a sitting president working for or raising money for a 501c4. >> i have not attempted to separate my comments -- i do represent organizing for action, which is the name of the organization you are referring to. i would simply say as you know, i will not be involved in electoral activity at all. in that sense, it's not to be confused with activity in an election cycle, the types of concerns the campaign finance sector we're talking about here today. as you know, it is devoted to federal and state public policy and issue development advocacy. it will be operating therefore as a social welfare organization. without going into tremendous amount of discussion about people's views of the feasibility of such an enterprise, i would say this -- the business of communic
can take a listen to part of your interview with president obama yesterday. >> my sense is that their basic view is that nothing is important enough to raise taxes on wealthy individuals or corporations, and they would prefer to see these kinds of cuts that could slow down our recovery over closing tax loopholes. and that's the thing that binds their party together at this point. this is a major argument, obviously, we've been having for the last three years. unfortunately, i think republicans right now have been so dug in on this notion of never raising taxes, that it becomes difficult for them to see an obvious answer right in front of them. >> can i be frustrated here for a second? is that okay with a smile on my face? >> mm-hmm. >> where's he been? where has the -- has the president been vacationing for three months? four months? where has he been? >> he was on the phone with speaker boehner and mitch mcconnell. >> that's what i don't understand. you know, when republicans folded and raised taxes for the first time in 25 years, i asked on this program, what are democ
. >> al, thank you. this morning lawmakers are getting nuances about why the obama administration believes it is okay to use drones to kill expected terrorists including americans. it's an issue that will be key at today's confirmation hearing for the president's pick for cia. michael isikoff is calling this story for us. michael, good morning. >> savannah, good morning. drone strikes, the obama administration's weapon of choice against terrorists are coming under scrutiny. after a disclosure justice department document obtained by nbc news this week that justifies the targeted killing of americans suspected of being top al qaeda leaders. for the first time today the white house is sharing the classified memo that lays out the legal basis for such strikes with members of the house and senate intelligence committees. the move comes at a crucial time as john brenan, president obama's nominee to be cia director, faces his confirmation hearing today on capitol hill. in the war over drone strikes, a major reversal from the white house. after years of ironclad secrecy, president obama directed t
the digital revolution, but with washington we just had an election. >> yeah. >> rose: president obama re-elected. we see now some movement towards immigration reform. >> yeah. >> rose: because elections have results. >> yeah. >> and they realize the latino population have shown their electoral strength is that where change is going to come from? because politicians finally began notwithstanding the corporate power that you mentioned, and the united decision by the supreme court, all of the things you referenced, that we have some possibility of regaining because elections have results and people see the-- and they want to come back to washington. and if, in fact, there are changes in the dem graphics of this country, we may have changes in policy. >> yeah. in the election last november the latino or hispanic community gave the republican party infra ocular trauma. and they realized that they will go extinct as a political party if they don't make the changes. and so no, it's very clear, what's happening. now i welcome it, i think it's great. and i think that president obama gave a terrif
